Cardi B’s buzzy Instagram rant about coronavirus is now headed for the Billboard charts.
A remix of her rant, produced by DJ iMarkkeyz, is aiming for a debut on a number of charts next week, including the all-genre Digital Song Sales tally and R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales. According to initial sales reports to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, the song has already sold more than 3,000 downloads in the U.S.
The song’s final sales tally for the week ending March 19 — along with its streaming total for the week — will be available by Monday, March 23. The above-mentioned charts, dated March 28, will be updated to Billboard’s website on Tuesday, March 24.
On March 19, Cardi B — who has helped promote the DJ iMarkkeyz remix through her social channels — said that she wants to donate proceeds from the sales and streams of the remix to charity. DJ iMarkkeyz agreed, tweeting to Cardi that was his “goal.”
